Gordon, the earth needs you

This has got to be one of the stranger space mission plans that I have heard of, yet oddly compelling for an astronaut with the right stuff. A one-way, one-person mission to Mars. Not just (unflash) Gordon, armies of other socialist functionaries could eventually be there pioneering there way on the red planet. "McLane’s hope is the solo astronaut would be joined by others shortly in the future. Orbital mechanics provides a desirable launch window from Earth to Mars every 26 months. 'This person wouldn’t be there by himself for very long. It’s just returning home that would be impossible,' he said."
